Toyota announces pricing for its 2023 GR Corolla Hot Hatch
Toyota unveiled its new GR Corolla hot hatch, including pricing for three trim levels and when the enthusiast-focused Corolla will go on sale.
What are the three trim levels?
The 2023 GR Corolla will be available in three trim levels: Core, Circuit and Morizo Edition. The Core is the base trim and has a starting price of $36,995, the mid-level Circuit trim starts at $43,995, and the premium and race-ready Morizo Edition is $50,995.
Why is the 2023 Toyota GR Corolla important?
The GR Corolla hatchback is important because it sets an affordable price point for buyers who want to get their hands on a high-performance vehicle. Compared to rivals like the Honda Civic Type R and Volkswagen Golf R, the GR Corolla’s price falls below those two class leaders.
The VW Golf R starts at $44,090, almost $8,000 more than the base GR Corolla Core. The Civic Type R is getting an update for the 2023 model year, and pricing is yet to be announced. However, the current Type R starts at $37,895, although the 2023 model will certainly see a step up.

If you’re waiting to grab the Morizo Edition, act fast. Toyota will only produce 200 models for the US market.
